Greetings. I am not very clear of what you exactly have - where herpes simplex or herpes zoster. Simplex is not very common on the neck area and zoster is not common in young age unless there's some triggering factor. Both need treatment with same medicine but dose is different. So without clarity on this it's tough for me to answer all your questions. In general - work towards reducing stress and improving general fitness. Further queries may be sent on follow up messaging. Warm regards
